There is a difference between skin complexion and skin tone. Complexion is the colour of your skin, tone is the undertone colour of your skin.
- To check what colour your skin tone is, put on a white shirt. If your skin appears to have a yellow/red appearance you have a warm skin tone, if you have a blue/pink undertone you have a cool skin tone.
- There are four main categories: fair, medium, olive, and dark.
- Use the below chart to choose your category:
Choose a foundation that is the same colour as your skin complexion. To see if you have the right foundation, apply it to the area between your lower cheek and jaw bone. As for your tone, many foundations will say on the bottle whether it is yellow-based(warm tone) or blue-based(cool tone). Once you know your tone you should buy a foundation that matches your complexion as well as your tone.
- If you have dark skin and your foundation makes your skin look ashen switch to a warmer tone foundation.
Dark - plums for cool tones, and orange/bronze for warmer tones
- choose beige if you are fair skinned with a warm tone
People with warm undertones should choose golden hues such as greens, browns, golds, and pinks
- Choose a shadow that looks good with your eye colour, as well as your complexion and tone. Keep in mind the affect that your hair colour has on the colours you can use.
- People with dark skin best suit bolder and darker eye shadow
